Public Comment

The Board recognizes the value of public comment on educational issues and the importance of involving members of the public in its meetings. In order to permit fair and orderly expression of public comment, the Board will provide a period at the beginning of the meeting during which visitors may address the Board on any topic within the scope of the Board’s responsibility. If possible, such presentations should be scheduled in advance with the Superintendent.

In addition, the Board may structure the public comment period, including determining the total time allotted for public comment and equally apportioning the minutes for each speaker. The Board is not obligated to provide additional public comment time to accommodate everyone in attendance who wishes to speak. Any structure the Board imposes will be content-neutral. In addition, the Board may require those who wish to speak (but not all attendees) to sign in so that the Board has a tally of individuals who wish to speak and can call them forward. When Policy No. 1400 McCleary School District No. 065 Board of Directors called forward, individuals will identify themselves and proceed to make comments within the time limits established by the Board


  •  Please complete the Public Comment Form prior to attending the meeting.
